Minutes Unlimited "I.D.E.N.T.I.T.Y" is delectably weird electronic

Contemporary electronic music has never been as delectably weird as it has been this past decade, with producers and artist more inclined towards incorporating strange, tactile textures into their craft. I.D.E.N.T.I.T.Y is the newest entry into this canon, a minimal debut by NYC duo Minutes Unlimited; with the right amount of tingle-inducing sonic accents, a healthy dose of synth and static, and an ever-wobbling bass presence, the two person group artfully craft an idiosyncratic sound. Replete with a layered sound that’s engaging but never too heavy, I.D.E.N.T.I.T.Y is a carefully balanced LP that will immediately resonate with fans of esoteric acts like Vegyn or SOPHIE — give it a listen below.

Photo cred: Brittany Powers

Latin-infused live drums form percussive harmonies with synthesizers and drum machines to create an other-worldly listening experience. The Seshen, known for their fusion of synth-pop, R&B and electronic music, is a six-piece Bay Area ensemble with powerful messages and relaxing beats. Lalin St. Juste’s vocals have just the right amount of mysticism, wisdom and grounding presence. Single “Don’t Answer” arrives today off the band’s third album, CYAN, out on Feb 28 via Tru Thoughts, along with the song's video, featuring mystic lades of the ocean. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Get haunted with Ghost Piss at Berlin 1.16

Imagining the haunted machinations of a drum machine is a good way to begin to understand Ghost Piss’s sound. Songwriter and purveyor of 808s River Allen excels at creating spacey electro-pop with off-kilter subject matter, from her ode to Stranger Things’s Nancy Kerrigan (“Nancy, Oh Nancy”) to her celebration of shiny teeth enthusiasts (“I’m Chip Skylark”). Underscored by echoing beats, atmospheric vocals, and a minimalist mindset, Allen’s tracks bring an experimental, dance-friendly soundtrack for nights out on the town or a private disco in your own bedroom; give it a listen below, and see Ghost Piss at Berlin on January 16th, alongside Den-Mate, The Spookfish, and Loren Beri.

Laura Wolf’s “Good Veins” is a glitched orchestra, plays Sultan Room 1.10

At the core of Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Laura Wolf’s sound is the congruence of tones eclectic and electronic. Her new single “Good Veins” exists at a point wherein the acoustic becomes synthetic, where strings are modified and altered insofar as they become a new instrument altogether, a sound Wolf aptly describes as “cello glitch pop.” Despite the vast change Laura Wolf’s string performance undergoes, it resonates with the listener as orchestral regardless; samplers, keys and vox congeal in a symphonic manner, each individual part brought in to build the track’s dramatic climax, fashioning music that wouldn’t be out of place in a chapel or a concert hall. Listen to the song below, and catch Laura Wolf at the Sultan Room on January 10th, alongside Katie Glasgow, Powerlines, and Foxanne. —Connor Beckett McInerney, Image by Anna Azarov
